As one of the regions best known landmarks and visitor attractions, Waddesdon Manor welcomed the team from The Fremantle Trust, inviting them to gain valuable gastronomic insights over two days.

Head chef Shaun Blythe and his team helped the visiting group to create an array of culinary masterpieces, including sweet potato and fennel soup with coconut cream, as well as double chocolate and nut brownies, which they were later able to sample.

The busy itinerary included a host of top tips on creating mouth-watering menus, from classic dishes to inspired twists on authentic recipes. Each day was rounded off with a wonderful afternoon tea, complete with assorted, freshly-made desserts, delicious cakes and biscuits.

Speaking afterwards, Kerry Plant, chef manager at Fremantles Lent Rise care home said: This was a tremendous opportunity to experience some new and exciting cuisine, thanks to the team at Waddesdon Manor.
